Actress won't wear red lipstick


Eva Mendes isn’t entirely happy with her lips.

The actress, who was recently voted Most Desirable Woman Of 2009 in an online survey, reckons they’re too full.

‘I’ve got a strange little face,’ she tells Easy Living magazine.

‘For example, I have a really big mouth, which is fine, but it would monopolise my face if I painted it bright red: you won’t see me in red lipstick, it’s very vulgar on me.’

But Eva, 34, has learned to make the most of what she’s got. 

‘I’m not complaining but it took a while for me to grow into my large features,’ she admits, ‘to know how to celebrate what I love and play down what I don’t.’
